February/March 2019

City centre business networking

December and January saw two brand new venues hosting the GM Business Connect First Friday Connectworking event.

The December event was hosted by Barclay’s Eagle Lab at Bruntwood’s Union building overlooking Albert Square and the Town Hall.

January saw us welcomed at Manchester Hall on Bridge Street, at their sumptuous Library.

December was great to see the facilities Barclays were offering the Manchester business community. We were shown around by Matthew Priestley, Ecosystem Manager, and the tour included co-working spaces, private offices, and a very hospitable event space.

January was also a great success, with a visit to Manchester Hall on Bridge Street. Frankie Garvey, Corporate Sales Manager, welcomed us to enjoy the wonderful architecture, and drinks were also kindly provided by Jeffrey’s Tonic, who supplied free Gin and Organic Tonic syrup especially for the event.

Tickets are available through EventBrite and cost £15. The entry cost includes a tombola ticket for Forever Manchester’s regular prize draws.
